St. Louis' largest law firm dedicated to a labor and employment law practice has announced that they are expanding by adding four attorneys.
McMahon, Berger, Hanna, Linihan, Cody & McCarthy specializes in representing employers in the full range of employment litigation, EEOC matters, class actions, traditional labor relations, OSHA, Railway Labor Act and before the National Labor Relations Board.
In 2005, the firm celebrated its 50th anniversary in this complex and focused field of law, following its formation by the former Regional Director of the National Labor Relations Board for the St. Louis Region in 1955.
New hires are Joshua Richardson, an attorney specializing in the area of employee benefits and pension plan administration.
Richardson is a graduate of Washington University School of Law, and holds an LLM in taxation from the University of Florida as well as an undergraduate degree in accounting.
Additionally, the firm has added Jeff Hackney, an employment defense trial attorney and traditional labor lawyer from the firm of Ford and Harrison in Atlanta.
The firm has also added Amy R. Brown, formerly a clerk for a federal judge in Kansas City and who also previously worked for the National Labor Relations Board in Washington, D.C.
Additionally, the firm has also announced the hiring of Kristin Kot, who will be graduating in May with a J.D. as well as an M.B.A. degree from St. Louis University School of Law and School of Business respectively.
"Our firm has continued to enjoy steady growth since it was founded in the 1950's. These welcomed additions provide the sustained growth of knowledge, experience, and depth which our clients have come to rely upon for all these years," says Thomas McCarthy, President of the firm.
With 23 attorneys devoted exclusively to representing employers in labor and employment matters, McMahon Berger remains one of the largest labor and employment defense firms in the Midwest.
